It looks like the New York Giants will be getting some important guys back on the practice field this week. Justin Tuck has missed the last two practices because of a sore back. While Justin Pugh has been out for about ten days because of a concussion.
Justin Pugh (concussion) has been cleared for practice. Justin Tuck is expected to practice tomorrow according to Coughlin

This is pretty big as the Giants need Pugh back on the field and up to speed. The rookie missed all of the teams mini-camps as he had no contract and then suffered the concussion right after he started to practice. His chances of starting in 2013 but he can still play an important role should injuries hit.
And Tuck well they just need him, plain and simple especially with Jason Pierre-Paul still on the shelf.

New York Giants’ third round draft selection Damontre Moore hopes to one day join the long list of outstanding defensive ends drafted and developed by the Giants. Moore was one of the best players on the field during the Giants’ 18-13 victory over the Pittsburgh Steelers Saturday night and has the potential to someday join Michael Strahan, Osi Umenyiora and current teammates Justin...
New York Giants receiver Hakeem Nicks (groin) will not play in Saturday's first exhibition game.Fantasy Spin:Nicks has played sparingly in OTAs and training camp, but is expected to be ready when the season opens. He's entering a contract year, so expect his best after battling injuries all last season and posting a well-below-expectation 53 receptions for 692 yards and three...
Tom Coughlin had concerns about the New York Giants' running game on both sides heading into the season.
Nothing has changed after the first preseason game.
The running game averaged a dismal 2.54 yards on 33 attempts in the 18-13 victory over the Pittsburgh Steelers on Saturday night. The first-team defense was shaky in its brief stint against one of the NFL's hard-nosed...
New York Giants safety Antrel Rolle says he sustained a ''pretty good'' sprain to his right ankle and does not know when he will be able to return to practice.
The Giants leading tackler the past two seasons, Rolle wore a protective boot on his foot in talking to the media for the first time since being hurt at practice Monday.
While he didn't have a timetable...
New York Giants veteran safety Antrel Rolle has been carted off the practice field after apparently hurting his right ankle at training camp.
Rolle was covering tight end Bear Pascoe on a pass near the right sideline. Both went up to catch a high pass and Rolle landed awkwardly and fell to the grass. He got up but had trouble putting weight on his leg.
Trainers and defensive coordinator...
Tom Coughlin isn't ready to give up on New York Giants running back David Wilson.
Wilson is certainly in Coughlin's doghouse once again after fumbling twice and having one returned for a touchdown in the Giants' six-turnover, 36-31 season-opening loss to the Cowboys on Sunday night.
The 2012 first-round pick was benched in the second half, and much of Coughlin's...
Looking back at the Pittsburgh Steelers first preseason game against the New York Giants, below are six things that really surprised me. I really didn’t think that Justin Cheadle would see any snaps in this game at center, but he played quite a few there. Cheadle has worked at center a little over the course [...]

Giants defensive end Justin Tuck told reporters today that he believes there’s a chance both Jason Pierre-Paul and Antrel Rolle could miss their season opener in Dallas this year, according to Ohm Youngmisuk of ESPNNewYork.com.
JPP is of course still recovering from back surgery and Rolle suffered a sprained ankle during Monday’s practice. The Giants really could use both...
